Almost exactly two hours later, Genoa’s Emanuele Calaiò scored in the 84th minute to earn a late point against the Partenopei. The kicker? Calaiò is currently on loan at Genoa from — yup, you guessed it — Napoli!
Calaiò thus actually hurt his parent club’s chances at an automatic Champions League spot for next season. With the draw, Napoli fell to six points behind Roma for second place.
Afterward, Calaiò apologized to the home fans:
"I’m sorry to have scored a goal against Napoli itself. I had important spells there,” Calaio said. ”When the manager gives me the opportunity I try to give my all for this shirt, our fans deserve it. I dedicate the goal to my family and my son.
It’s the third goal in my career I’ve scored from a free kick, I’m sorry to have scored at the San Paolo, but that’s my job and I hope to score in the next games too.”
Not to be outdone, UEFA also announced the Europa League’s round of 32 matches on Monday, were Juventus must return to Turkey, the scene of their surprise Champions League exit, to face Trabzonspor.
Here’s the full draw below:
